The Shizuku line from Yu Kurosaki is another beautiful example of the work that Kurosaki San produces. Shizuku translates to "drop" which is what the look of the tsuchime (hammered) pattern is meant to resemble. The blade has a Aogami Super core steel with stainless cladding and a Kurouchi (black) finish on the top portion of the blade. The handle is made from a single piece of waterproof Wenge wood which has a beautiful dark ebony color. The fit and finish on these is excellent as with all knives from Kurosaki San. 

*The Gyuto or Chef Knife is considered by many to be the most important and diverse knife of all. This jack of all trades style knife can be used for all kinds of tasks including boneless meat or fish butchery, vegetable prep, cutting and slicing herbs, as a line knife and much more. Typically ranging in size from 180mm to 300mm the blade shape can vary from maker to maker but typically they will be somewhat flat towards the rear of the knife working up to a "belly" making it suitable for rocking or push cutting. If you can only have one knife this would be a top contender.*
